Here’s the thing, the “booty pop” is just wrong on so many levels! Why do we continue to imprint our younger women with the message that who they are is just “not enough”? How young are we starting the message? How long does that memory last? I think that we could fairly say that the memory of that message lasts a long time – considering the number of young & adult women who are apparently buying things like booty pop. Of course, the booty pop is just one of the most recent body changers I’ve seen advertised, but it stands out (literally) among many. From stuffing your bra (although THAT was never my problem) to wearing whatever everyone else was wearing regardless of size or body shape, season, color, etc. – you tried to make it work. BUT, there comes a point when those things should lose priority and you move on, letting your inner pride scream. You recognize the lack of logic and how at the most practical level the obsession becomes almost ridiculous. For those that haven’t had that “A-Ha” moment… it’s not too late.
And here’s the other thing I don’t get… if you’ve ever been a teenager you have memories of being the laughER as well as the laughEE! We laugh hysterically at the memories of girls pulling rolls of toilet paper out of their bras in the back seat of somebody’s daddy’s car… What’s wrong with this picture (and I can’t wait to see the movie with this scene)??? “Hey baby, bring that firm round butt over here… …now …… drop those draws and show me that flat a** you got hiding under there?????” What are we thinking?? Insanity, I tell you.
